London’s 2012 Olympics Basketball Arena Will Make Beijing ‘08 a Distant Memory
Many of us expressed constant amazement during Bejing’s 2008 Summer Olympic games, but London will hold its own next year. The 2012 Olympics’ basketball arena has been completed and the 12,000 seat arena will give London its own cool vibe.
Best of all: the arena will be dismantled after the Olympics and reinstalled elsewhere in the United Kingdom. It was build on time and on budget, and will host its first event within two months.
Designers included Sinclair Knight Merz: Nussli International; Wilkinson Eyre; and KSS Design Group. Based on the work so far, we are in for a treat next summer--athletics and architecture will reign!
